We told you Monday when the city clerk council candidate Diane Schwenke’s attorney told the city workers made a mistake in setting aside over 380 ballots because missing information or mistakes from voters on the outside of the ballot envelope. That’s called a self-affirmation.

Schwenke claimed that decision limited the ability of voters to cast their ballots.

Grand Junction’s city attorney returned the letter and told Schwenke the city did not break any rules. You can read it unedited below:

The race between Schwenke and Scott Beilfus is separated by 232 votes with Schwenke losing.
